  2. The History of Higher Landscape Architecture Education at ETH Zurich, Switzerland 

    Richter, Dunja (2023)
    The Routledge Handbook of Landscape Architecture Education
    This chapter traces the history of landscape architecture education at the ETH Zurich (Swiss Federal Institute of Technology) where the Department of Architecture started to offer a two-year degree programme leading to a Master of Science in Landscape Architecture. It is after decades of effort that landscape architecture was established as an independent post-graduate programme at a Swiss university. The subject initially developed into ...

  3. Disgust and Eating Behavior 

    Hartmann, Christina; Siegrist, Michael (2020)
    Handbook of Eating and Drinking
    Disgust is a human emotion that prevents us from having contact with something that might be pathogenic, because it triggers behavioral avoidance of the stimulus. People can vary in their tendency to react with disgust towards cues that indicate the presence of pathogens such as certain odors (e.g., smell of decayed food) or visual cues (e.g., mold, runny nose). This disgust sensitivity was linked to a broad range of behavioral and ...

  4. Overcoming the Challenges of Communicating Uncertainties Across National Contexts 

    Siegrist, Michael; Hartmann, Christina (2017)
    Oxford library of psychology ~ The Oxford Handbook of the Science of Science Communication
    The goal of risk communication is to provide information about risks and uncertainties in a way that enables people to make the best decisions, based on their own values. Various factors influence the success of risk communication. This chapter first highlights risk communication methods and formats that determine successful risk communication. For example, laypeople do not understand all presentation formats of numbers equally well, and ...

  9. Potential of Fullerenes for Photodynamic Therapy Application 

    Yamakoshi, Yoko (2021)
    Handbook of Fullerene Science and Technology
    Since the initial reports on 1O2 generation from C60 and C70 by Foote in 1991 and photo DNA cleavage activity of water-soluble C60 derivative by Nakamura in 1993, many studies have been reported on the use of fullerenes (C60 and C70) in photodynamic therapy (PDT). The advantages of fullerenes as photosensitizers (PSs) in PDT include high quantum yield in the generation of reactive oxygen species (ROSs) and a relatively long excitation ...

    Fischer, Sophie-Charlotte; Gilli, Andrea; Gilli, Mauro (2021)
    The Oxford Handbook of Grand Strategy
    What is the relationship between technological change and grand strategy? Can great powers promote technological trends that allow them to pursue specific grand-strategic goals? Or is technological change beyond the reach of great powers, and thus it acts like an independent enabler or an independent constraint? This book chapter by CSS' Sophie-Charlotte Fischer, Andrea Gilli and CSS' Mauro Gilli provides a brief introduction to the ...

    Schlattner, Uwe; Tokarska-Schlattner, Malgorzata; Saudou, Frédéric; et al. (2021)
    Encyclopedia of Biological Chemistry III
    Metabolite channeling is a general mechanism to increase efficiency of sequential reactions in a metabolic pathway. It describes the transfer of intermediates between sequential enzymes without equilibration of these metabolites with the surrounding bulk solution, forming so-called metabolons or microcompartments. It is structurally based on colocalization or complex formation of the participating enzymes and on specific diffusion ...

  15. Bio-Based organic and hydroxy acid production with corynebacterium glutamicum 

    Wieschalka, Stefan; Litsanov, Boris (2021)
    The Encyclopedia of Bacteriology Research Developments
    Organic acids are used in several industrial sectors, such as food or pharmaceutical industry and serve as building block chemicals for a vast variety of products. Up to date many of them are obtained from petrochemical resources, implementing energy intensive chemical refining and waste production with a high environmental impact [1]. The enormous annual demand requests the development of efficient and sustainable bioprocesses for organic ...

  19. How will autonomous vehicles impact car ownership and travel behavior 

    Bösch, Patrick M.; Becker, Felix; Becker, Henrik; et al. (2021)
    International Encyclopedia of Transportation
    The results of studies investigating the impact of automated vehicles can vary substantially, partly due to different assumptions on key input parameters such as costs and travel behavior. We therefore present a detailed cost analysis that was performed for 17 metropolitan areas in 15 different countries. Furthermore, we show the results of a comprehensive survey that was conducted in the canton of Zurich of Switzerland, with the intent ...

  20. Policy Instruments to Reduce Carbon Emissions From Road Transport 

    Cerruti, Davide; Huse, Cristian (2021)
    International Encyclopedia of Transportation
    This paper surveys policy instruments aiming at reducing carbon emissions from road transport. We present the basic economic framework used to evaluate environmental policy instruments and discuss the challenges and limitations it faces, which are important enough to justify departures from the first-best instrument (Pigouvian tax). We then discuss a number of policy instruments, including fuel and mileage taxes, standards, different forms ...
